Grizz sure loves his dad

These two are inseparable lately. To be honest, it is kind of starting to tic me off. He used to be such a mamma's boy.

I have been tagged by Meri and Rachel and I am FINALLY getting to the goods. This might be kind of hard to think of 6 unusual things for both Ken-dog and myself, but here it goes...

1. When I was little I sucked my thumb for a REALLY REALLY long time. Like we are talkin' until the 3rd or 4th grade. And that would explain the 5 years of braces and head-gear that followed. Man I wish I had a picture of that to share with ya.

2. I have a very very soft spot in my heart for elderly men. It is not unusual for me start crying UNCONTROLLABLY when I see one eating alone in a restaurant, asking for money, or even just driving slowly down the highway. I don't know what it is about old men that tugs on my heart strings, but they always have and probably always will.

3. I sleep with those dorky eye masks every single night. I am tellin' ya, if you have never tried them it is pure bliss.

See how peaceful she sleeps.

4. I am a firm believer that breakfast IS MOST CERTAINLY the most important meal of the day. I will be late for work before I will miss or even rush myself through my favorite meal of the day. I also eat the same two things for b-fast every single day. (1.)Cereal with frozen blueberries when it's warm out (this works great for me bc I am not a real fan of milk ya see. This tasty treat tricks me into getting the calcium my little bones need by making the milk almost like a blueberry slushy).Mmmm Mmmm baby!
And (2.)For the cold mornings like today I go with the toasty oatmeal, also with blueberries. Real oatmeal not those nasty packets that are 80% sugar and 20%oats.

5. I grew up in the small town of Price where we really had to be creative with our activities. One of the ever so populars for us young girls was to sneak out late at night and meet at the canal swing for some swinging, swimming and skinny dipping. There really was something invigorating about swinging buck-naked by the light of the moon and then blindly dropping into the nasty brown, infested with who knows what, water. Seriously you couldn't pay me enough to get in that water now. It is a wonder none of us gals got any diseases.

6. As much as I try to fight it, I am REALLY REALLY baby hungry.

1. When Ken was about 6 years old he went through a little stage of kleptomania. He stole a flashlight from a neighbor, toys from friends and even jewelry from his grandma. All who fell victim of his shen-nan-agans turned him in to his mom and begged her not to get mad at him! Luckily go grew out of this stage.

2.When Ken and I were dating he would call and sing to me on my voicemail. The first time he did this he sang "Just to be with you" by Mr. Big. To this day that is one of our favorite love songs.

3. Kenny kisses Grizzly and tells him he loves him when he thinks no one is watching.

4. When we get together for family parties Ken is never a part of the adult activities or conversation. He would MUCH RATHER be playing hide and go seek or tag with all of the nieces and nephews. Because of this, he is by far the favorite Uncle, but I think Ken actually enjoys these childish games more than the kidos.

5. I think that Ken was pampered just a tad more than I was growing up. And as a result of this he has some "high maintenance" ways about him. For example: he cannot let his pillows touch the ground, EVER. Not even if it is on our very own brand new carpet! (Someone out there please tell me that is not how everyone outside of the Heiner family is). His bedding must be washed at least once a week. And my personal favorite, he MUST have a certain kind of toothpaste, soap, and laundry products or "he will break out". Can I just say that this created some small moments of frustration during that first year of marriage.

6. I think that we would all laugh our heads off if we could spend a day in the life of Ken's thoughts. Let me illustrate why. This is a very typical conversation for Ken and I.

Driving along silently...

Me: What ya thinking about?
(don't kid yourself that I am hoping he is thinking about having little Johnson babies.)

Ken: Actually I was just thinking about what I would do if I was attacked by a pack of wolves and all I had to defend myself was a pocket knife. Do you think I would win?

Me: Sigh. Yeah sweety I am sure you could show 'em whose boss.

Ken: Yeah I think so. I was also thinking about who would win in a fight between a Tiger and a Lion. What do you think? Or what about a Grizzly bear or a Polar Bear? Now that could be good fight.

He could then proceed to talk like this for hours on end.

Ok, I guess it's time to do some tagging! I want to hear 6 unusual things about Jill, Marnae, Christy, Abby, Skyler and Kenya.
